Yep, there it is. No surprise there.

I personally still don’t think the base Polymega (provided it can run all of the CD-based console emulators that it claims to, proficiently) is a bad proposition. The interface looks interesting, and I really like that it focuses on a group of consoles that haven’t already been targeted since their initial console release.

I will concede that if one does choose to go this route over a DIY solution, they are sacrificing arguably the core benefit.

The greatest article ever produced.

We had friends over at one point and the wife said to her husband " oh look at all those old consoles, why Don’t we have any of ours hooked up?" and his reply was " because we have a retropie and it’s better"

I almost jazzy jeffed him out the door lol

Hard Drive News is the gift that keeps on giving.


#829

HAHAHAHA! I needed that laugh this morning.


#830

Lmaoooo. He’s just misinformed socks. Maybe he’s used to playing his old consoles on an HD set using composite or RF. The input lag plus horrible image quality in that case would be far worse than emulation over HDMI imo


#831

That article is a classic!


#832

Hilarious article. So true.

And the dude in the picture just looks like a perfectly smug preppie-ass pick.


#835

Hmmm they apologized and that footage looks pretty good. Guess it’s looking more promising

For a software emulation box with unproven controller ergonomics it’s way too rich for me. Even before the worldwide shipping.

I was into when it involved an FPGA that would (probably) be expandable and reprogrammable. That kind of “future-proof”, multi-platform, one-box solution would be very welcome.

Visiting family in the LA area, always check craigslist for PVM’s. It was pretty dead this past Christmas but there’s several 20L5’s on there now, too bad shipping them would kill me. They’re also going for ~$1000, which sadly seems about market value.


#838

Yeah on my next windfall I may end up getting a 20L5 here in LA. They won’t be getting cheaper, that’s for sure. Gotta replace my imperfect 20M4U and would like a CRT that does 480p for my Dreamcast.


#839

If you are in LA don’t bother with Craiglist. PM me and I will give you the number of the Sony pvm tech. He always has good monitors.


#840

Anyone got a similar hookup in the Northern VA area? Please? :c


#841

Good to know, unfortunately I always fly down so shipping probably isn’t worth it. I also just like to look. I have a 1954Q, it’s not top of the line but has served me well the last couple years.

I have been dying for a multi-scan capable monitor for years and I just think I missed the boat on anything remotely affordable. I live in a pretty rural area so I consider myself very lucky in finding the monitors I have.
